Ask Gearographer: Feminine Products


Dear Gearographer,

I am always willing to pick up stuff for my husband at the store but he won’t return the favor. It doesn’t matter if he needs deodorant, shaving cream or even powder for jock itch; I’m there for him. Yesterday I asked him to pick up some tampons for me and he started singing, “La, la, la”, stuck his fingers in his ears and then rambled on about football starting soon. What is wrong with him?

Dear Feminine,

You are absolutely correct; we men don’t want to even think about…that. There is that one certain aisle in the grocery store, usually aisle number 4 that is a no-man’s land. We never go down it, won’t even peek in that direction and rarely even admit it exists. I recently went down aisle 4 to research this question and saw, “La, la, la”, I can’t hear a thing; how about those Denver Broncos this year?
